Funko isn't the only company turning your most beloved characters into oversized caricatures. Over in Japan, gachapon maker Panda no Ana has been making a name for itself with Shakurel Planet - a range of toy-capsules that contain miniature animals with oversized jaws - and it's now turned its attention to the cutesy world of Kirby and the Dream Land.

Gachapon (which refers to a long-running craze in Japan for toys and other items dispensed from vending machines) is big business in the East, so the new line - which includes Kirby, Whispy Woods, Meta Knight and plenty more - is bound to cause a stir in both the 'blind bag' and the 'toys with massive jaws' communities.


In the meantime, why not check out our review of Kirby Battle Royale before its release in the US on 19th January, 2018?

The Kirby Shakurel will be making its way to Japanese vending machines very soon. While they're highly unlikely to get a similar release over here, would you want to import one? Does a chiseled Meta Knight float your boat? Let us know below!
